Barnard Castle Prep School

The Prep School is an integral part of Barnard Castle School, having access to all its facilities and expertise.

It is situated in a separate area of the school grounds with its own organisation, staff and buildings. Pupils, therefore, have the benefit of the security of their own area while benefiting from many extras.

We are proud of our wide range of extra curricular activities at Prep School; something for everyone.
